sto=shtoh
8. If you go into a hotel and you ask, "Koliki je vas procenat?" What is it you are asking?

Answer: What is your rate?

When you go into a hotel that is the first question you want to ask, especially because a lot of hotels will try to scam you depending on what part of Serbia you are in. Older countries are known for doing so.
"Koliki je vas procenat", can save you from mishap.

*Pronounced: Kohl-eekee ay vush praw-sen-uht(Koliki je vas procenat?)*
9. Your Serbian friend returns home from running his errands. His mother asks "Gde s ti bio?" What is she asking him?

"Gde s ti isao?"="Where did you go?"-Incorrect

*Pronounced= Guh-day stee bee-oh(Gde s ti bio?)*
10. Here's a tough one for you. If you are joking around with a serbian friend and he/she says, "Ti si kornjaca!" What did he/she just call you?
